Neville unhappy with England youth teams

3 July 2013 00:04

England coach Gary Neville has labelled the performance of the country's youth teams as "disappointing" over the close-season.

Neville, who played over 600 times for Manchester United in 19 years at the club, is now working under England manager Gary Hodgson with the country's senior team.

Hodgson's side have been largely inactive in the close-season, playing just two friendlies against the Republic of Ireland and Brazil.

But England's Under-21 and Under-20 teams have been in action, with Stuart Pearce losing his job in charge of the former after they lost all three matches at the recent UEFA European Championships.

England's Under-20 team also failed to make it out of their group at the World Cup, and Neville admitted their efforts were poor.

"They haven't done well as they would have wanted," Neville said.

"And it's disappointing.....tournament football is one of the most difficult things you'll do."

Despite the poor results though, Neville feels there are still plenty of good young talents coming through the English football system.

"It's quite clear there's a group of players coming to the end of their international careers.....but there are young players, good technical players, hopefully they can grow in these next few years and we can win something with them," he added.
